lyrics

dear uncle Screwtape
it’s almost too easy
yeah their strongest men fall so quickly
completely numb, no calamity
content to breathe, but not dream

dear uncle Screwtape
yeah, it’s almost far too easy
the men they claim are their best
fall apart so quickly

this is where we want them
only knowing lust
staring straight down
screaming ‘bottles bottles up’

dear uncle Screwtape
it’s almost too easy
their strongest men fall so quickly
completely numb, no calamity
content to breathe, but not dream

I’ve successfully trained my target
to care only about himself
to know that liquor and women
are far better for his health

yeah I taught him that dreams are for the youth
and laissez-faire for the strong
that coal mines are the pinnacle of mankind
and he’ll be remembered when he’s gone

(prechorus)

(chorus)

resolve is for the lions
so let the sheep keep their pride
questions are for the strongest
may the sheep never open wide their eyes


resolve is for the lions
so let the sheep keep their pride
questions are for the strongest
may these sheep never open wide their eyes

“my nephew
so glad to hear all is well
rock bottom creates an awareness of hell
if he starts to think too much
you’ll have to reel him in

has he been exchanging words with stronger sheep?
make sure worthless thoughts are thoughts that he keeps
may he never feel the warmth of truth
nor the sting of hell’s heat”

one match to a pipe
lips to whiskey
watch a great generation drown themselves so quickly
one match to a pipe
one walking disease
our greatest minds
drown in dice and adultery
